The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “seriously considering” moving to Windsor to be closer to Queen Elizabeth II.
According to the Mail on Sunday, the royal couple has been looking for places to stay in the area that are suitable for their three children, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and three-year-old Prince Louis. This could indicate that Kate and William are on their way to becoming more senior members of the royal family.
The Cambridge family currently divides their time between Kensington Palace, where they also have offices, and Anmer Hall, their country home on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
The Queen gave the couple Anmer Hall as a wedding gift, and they made it their permanent residence between 2015 and 2017.
The duke and duchess would be able to commute into London more easily if they were permanently based in Windsor, and they would be closer to Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, who live in Bucklebury.
“While William was a helicopter pilot in East Anglia, Anmer Hall made sense, and it was useful for Christmases at Sandringham, but it no longer makes sense. Windsor is a good compromise for weekend trips because it’s a little too far away. They’re looking into different options in the area “According to the publication, a source said.
Following the Covid outbreak in March of last year, the Queen relocated to Windsor Castle indefinitely. Windsor also has a special meaning for the monarch because it is where her 73-year-old husband, Prince Philip, is buried and where the royal couple used to spend every Easter together. Her Majesty will spend the summer at Balmoral Castle in Scotland and Christmas at Sandringham House, as is customary.
